Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide... read more

Dimash Kudaibergen. Once you've heard his voice, you will never forget it. The timbre of rare beauty, an insane range of 5 octaves, and flawless technique. His voice is full of emotion and conveys all the feelings of the song, no matter what language he sings in.

Dimash has revolutionized music! He is the best vocalist in the world!

Dimash has an incredible voice with a range of 4.5 octaves. When I first listened to his singing, I was shocked on one hand (unbelievable! I couldn't imagine he had the same vocal range as the famous Farinelli) and on the other hand, I was so pleased that I had the opportunity to listen to him. He has a strong and solid musical education and background. You can feel it and see it through his manner of performance. It is not just copy and paste. It's his own interpretation and rendition of the musical material. In my opinion, it sounds fresh, modern, technically improved, with higher tones, and better than the original. Dimash is definitely the best voice in the world!

2 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave... read more

Freddie Mercury - God of Music! I don't use that term lightly, but there is no other way to accurately sum up Freddie's genius. They would have to invent new superlatives to even get close to this man's incredible magic. He was absolute perfection.

Although Freddie had an amazing four-octave range, his talents extended far beyond that, if you can believe it. It was his passion, his charisma, his connection with the audience, his exuberance, his energy, his magnetism, and his incomparable magic. Simply the best of all time and forever, without competition or comparison, in a league of his own, absolutely God-like.

Freddie Mercury - Perfection.
Freddie Mercury - A Slice of Heaven.
Freddie Mercury - The Best of the Best.
Freddie Mercury - The God of Music!

3 Elvis Presley Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Dubbed the "King of Rock and Roll", he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined... read more

Elvis is the most imitated human being in every way you can imagine, but never duplicated, which includes "That Voice." This is a fact, not an opinion. I acknowledge everything he did. He is the King, but I have other personal favorites. He's still the greatest pop culture phenomenon of all time.

Freddie Mercury is a freak of nature, the greatest vocalist, but he sings so many different songs in so many different ways that you don't always know it's him. That's a whole different contest.

His voice is wonderful, clearly identifiable. Elvis, known all around the world as the king of music. No one will ever equal him because he is the greatest entertainer/singer who has ever lived. He is the real number ONE! Rest in peace, darling man, we love you.

4 Vitas Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov, known professionally as Vitas, is a Ukrainian singer and songwriter. He sings mainly in Russian. His music is often difficult to categorize, incorporating elements of techno, dance, classical, jazz, and folk music.

Vitas is a unique artist. If you really take the time to discover his music, you will be fascinated. He is the only one in his own brilliant creative style in both vocal and stage performance that made him go viral worldwide and easiest to be recognized nowadays.

Besides all these special differences, Vitas means much more than just an angelic tenor voice that can immediately touch the listeners' hearts and create a long-term link to their souls. Seek the songs composed by Vitas. You'll want to listen to them again and again because they are often beautiful in both melodies and poetic lyrics. Really big talented person. I've known him for 12 years, and I will continue to be his fan.

5 Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash (1932-2003) was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. He died of... read more

I've never heard of the top 2, but neither could be more recognizable than Johnny Cash. He sang for nearly 50 years and dabbled in all genres of music at some point in his career. Anyone could tell it was him.

I have no idea who Dimash Kudaibergen is at the top of the list. I think to be most recognizable, people should know who it is and have heard them. To me, the Man in Black is tops here.

Johnny Cash has one of the best singing voices I've ever heard. He was a great country-rock singer and one of the most recognizable voices ever.

6 Dolly Parton Dolly Rebecca Parton is an American singer-songwriter, actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian, known primarily for her work in country music.
7 Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

He's the lead singer of Maroon 5, who sings This Love, I Won't Go Home Without You, She Will Be Loved, and Makes Me Wonder.

How could you not know it's Adam singing? This is by far the most recognizable voice I have ever heard. He's not bad either.

Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long... read more

You can tell Cher's voice from a mile away. It's more recognizable than any other voice on this list.

The Goddess's fabulous voice is instantly recognizable.

Gorgeous, talented, and ahead of her time.

This list is a complete, total, 100% joke. Axl Rose, my hero and one of the best music artists ever, is not in the top 2, along with MJ. He's got the most easily recognizable voice ever. We all know it when we hear it, right?

If there is one artist whose voice I will never forget, it's Axl Rose. I have never heard anyone else with a voice as unique as his, making him very easy to distinguish.

I don't care for him, but I've never heard a singer that can go from singing a bass note to singing a high tenor instantly!

The Contenders
11 Jack White John Anthony "Jack" White is an American singer and songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer and guitarist of the duo The White Stripes, but has also had success in other bands and as a solo artist.

The most recognizable voice in music, other than Freddie Mercury, is from a while ago. Cool art and icon in the modern age of sound. Good knack and talent you can listen to, lots to learn from, and kind.

Nobody can be more instantly recognized. White's voice is so different from anyone else in the industry. It's fantastic.

I know his voice anywhere. Ozzy's vocals are just as powerful now as they always were, despite the way he sounds when he talks. Ozzy is my man! I love him so much. There are others I like just as much, though. Ozzy always was pretty awesome!

Who doesn't know Ozzy's voice when they hear it? Some people are just crazy.

I'm going off the rails on a crazy train!

Wow! With a couple of exceptions, this list is way better than the other unique singing voices list. Willie should really be in the top ten, but I'm not going to complain about 13.

A true country pioneer. So many hits and wrote so many big songs. Everyone knows this guy!

An amazing country singer. Respect.
